Boss of restaurant attacked.
ONE of Belfast's leading restaurateurs was in hospital with a head wound last night after being assaulted outside his home.
Eddie Fung, 38, founded the Red Panda group and recently opened the Fat Buddha on Belfast's Lisburn Road.
Two men assaulted him outside his house at Briar Court, off Upper Road in Greenisland, early on Saturday.
Police have ruled out a racial motive and are thought to be investigating whether it was an attempted robbery.
His attackers escaped in a small red car.
Mr Fung was in a stable condition after treatment for his wound.
In a separate attack in Newtownabbey in Co Antrim, a 46-year-old man suffered a suspected broken arm and leg when he was beaten by four men with batons in the Ballyduff estate.
It happened at Ballyfore Walk at about 4am. Police have appealed for information about both assaults.
